Nothing says good morning like these small-batch whole wheat pumpkin waffles! They’re sure to get you up and out of bed early!

These small-batch whole wheat pumpkin waffles are a healthy, yet indulgent breakfast!

Last week was a doozy in my blog world. I found out that tons of my original photos (including the ones of Mad and Bee from my about pages) were stolen and published on fradulent stock photo site for download. While I wanted to fly off the handle (because, my babies!), I managed to keep my cool and just handle it.

Long story short, my little coroner of the blog world is super safe; now under strict lock and key.

I could have let this experience steal my love for blogging, photographing, and sharing, but I refused to! In fact, I fought back, and the very day I found out about all this, I baked (to relieve stress, of course) and photographed three new recipes! One of which was this recipe for small-batch whole wheat pumpkin waffles. The world needs them!

Quick and easy small-batch whole wheat pumpkin waffle recipe.

Now, moving on to breakfast talk! This little waffle recipe is the bomb; it’s super duper easy to whip up and you only need one bowl. You just whisk the dry ingredients together, add the wet ingredients, let it rest for a few minutes, and then it’s waffle time!

You’ll only get about 4 regular size waffles out of this recipe, so you may need to double it if you need a few more, which is actually a pretty good idea; make more. I made extra and then threw them in the freezer for the weekdays – worked like a charm. Best. Breakfast. Ever.

These small-batch whole wheat pumpkin waffles make the perfect fall breakfast!

And the waffles, you guys; the waffles are crispy, and light, and fluffy, and spicy. In a word, they are…YUM! I’ve always been a traditional waffle with syrup kinda gal, but when I tried these with the fresh whipped cream and chopped pecans on top, that was it; I was forever changed. I personally don’t think you even need syurp for these whole what pumpkin waffles, but I’ll let you be the judge of that.
